Our FFXVANE Hub Community Member of the Month for May is none other than… *Drumroll* ShiZZa! Thank you for everyone who participated in the voting process. Please don’t worry that if your pick didn’t win, there will be multiple attempts to vote for them throughout the year! So please, relax, and enjoy a little more information with the full interview below:
What do you enjoy the most about FFXVANE?
Figuring out the new meta when we get new releases. Just because it’s new doesn’t mean it’s better. It may supplement what you currently have but still might not be the best. This also leads to something I miss. There used to be more value in mixing and matching armor based on what meta you wanted to play. Armor and Gems used to play so much more into the game. Now it’s mainly research and building focused.
What’s your favorite part of the community?
The people. Over the time I’ve played FFXVANE I’ve been many wonders of life. One of the things I think they did the best in this game compared to most is auto-translator. Don’t get me wrong it still has issues. But being able to connect with people all over the world, and learn their stories has been great. Many bonds and friendships have been created and even some tears.
I also enjoy helping people in the community. I will admit I help my guilds and allies a bit more because well there is a game here with points and I like to win.
I also like taking people’s feedback back to the game developers. Just recently in our Moogle Mart, they started listing quantities of items with our recent event with M, T, KT, BT next to the amounts. This makes things so much easier to read. Something I’ve been going back and forth with support over the last few months. I hope we see this in other places like the realm boss drops.
I’ve also been going back and forth over RVR events and point systems. I miss the original style. Right now it’s mainly whatever realm holds the most crystals. That’s fun and all but not everyone can participate.
What advice do you give to new and advanced players?
Don’t buy all the packs. There are almost zero benefits to buying day 1 packs. Because the next day they will contain 2-3x the amount. At least in the current state. After a few months into the Dark World, there has been almost zero in realm fighting. So you are mainly buying packs for RVR and Neutral Events
Normally I would have stated Stock up on MP. At this time it’s hard to say the value of mp because over the last 30 days it seems to have been devalued. The ratio to MP to Reward has been lowered.
What are some of your favorite memories of FFXVANE?
I would say my first Titian event. There was a huge buildup to it for months. Our realm and Guild were fierce. The first week they announced it, I didn’t even want to know how much money Ed and I spent on Expansions, I think we were still in the 40-50 bracket at the time. When the Titan realm opened there was a merc event in there at the start. If you attacked these buildings with mercs the mercs killed on the report were refunded. This was a bug and the first doubling of most people’s merc inventories. About 30 min into the evening most things stopped and everything was delayed. About 12 hrs later Titian opened and events resumed. At this time I had passed out and Ed was still online. I woke up a few hours into it. My role was now breaking rallies headed for the Titian. Think I lost my hero about 2 times during that. I’ve never really cared about my hero getting banished but it was so much fun.
What’s your favorite Ice Cream?
Vanilla Ice Cream w/ Bourbon
What’s your favorite Taco?
Soft Shell with Ground Beef. I’m not a fan of tomatoes so anything but that on it.
What’s your favorite Coffee?
Not a coffee drinker, but I do like White Chocolate Vanilla Mocha.
